Dr. Kenneth Tyler, a professor and chair of the department of neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and another adviser to the CDC on AFM, agreed. "I'm glad to see they're moving in the right direction," he said. Both neurologists praised the CDC for becoming more communicative and responsive about AFM with doctors and patients over the past two weeks. Jeremy Wilcox, a Virginia man whose son was diagnosed with AFM in September, also praised the agency for becoming more open. Parents of children with AFM say that for years, their emails to the CDC went unanswered.
